Cheltenham Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy is one of 11 entries in the BetVictor Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse.

Trainer Pat Kelly threw a curve ball last weekend when not declaring last season’s RSA Chase winner for the Red Mills Chase at Gowran – so Fairyhouse on Saturday is his last option to run over fences before the Festival.

Were he to do so, however, he is unlikely to have things all his own way – mwith some quality from the yards of Gordon Elliott and Willie Mullins potentially in opposition.

Elliott can choose between Alpha Des Obeaux, Don Poli, Mala Beach, Monbeg Notorious or Outlander.

Mullins is thinking of running Rathvinden – winner of the four-miler at last year’s Cheltenham Festival – while Pleasant Company, second in the Grand National in April, is another possible.

Henry de Bromhead’s Valseur Lido, Jessica Harrington’s Magic Of Light and Stephen Mahon’s Champagne Harmony complete the list.
